your weather now forecast - expect the warm and dry weather to continue through the middle of next week. breezy north winds will occur across most of the area tomorrow and monday, especially in the lower colorado river valley. -------------------------------- ------------ in the long term, a pacific storm system will move through the region late wednesday and thursday, bringing thursday, bringing increased chances of precipitation to portions of the area. only slightly cooler temperatures are expected after the system moves through. we will break that down in a minute. -------------------------------- ------------- a system will approach the california coast wednesday, providing increased southwest flow across the region. given the deeper mixing through the afternoon, believe wednesday will likely be the warmest day for most locations. southwest winds will be gusty and could be fairly strong across the sierra nevada from late wednesday afternoon through thursday morning.
an eye on the forecast strength and the potential for some downsloping into valley. there is still some model disagreement with the system as it moves inland. -------------------------------- ------------------- one model remains weaker with the trough than the european model, which has implications on the timing as well as coverage of precipitation. another system shows a little slower and a little more generous with the precip than previous one, yet both models agree the precip should be quickly ending if not already dry by thursday night. -------------------------------- ------------------- even with the timing and precip differences, the overall picture still indicates that the greatest precip chances should be confined to areas north and west of las vegas wednesday night through thursday. with the trough moving through rather fast and not being too deep, expect temperatures to drop only a few degrees thursday and perhaps friday, yet remaining above normal. -------------------------------- -------------- here's your weather now - most accurate 7-day forecast: tonight: mostly clear, with a low around 48. calm wind becoming northwest 5 to 9 mph in the evening.
